Remove an SSB
- Use one of these Oracle ILOM commands to display faulty components:
-> show faulty
-> show /System/Open_Problems
See View Log Files (Oracle ILOM) for examples.
- Determine whether the SSB can be stopped without stopping PDomains:
> show /SYS/SSBx current_config_state
current_config_state = State
- If state = Disabled, go to Step 6. You can remove the SSB without halting
- If state = Enabled, go to Step 3. PDomains might have to be halted.
- Determine what types of PDomains are in the server:
- For each PDomain, determine whether it is an expandable PDomain:
-> show /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_x/HOST/ expandable
expandable = State
The expandable property has two possible states, true and false.
- Repeat Step a for the remaining PDomains in the server.
- Based on the results that you found:
- If expandable state = false for all PDomains, go to Step 6. No PDomains
are expandable. You do not need to stop the PDomains.
- If expandable state = true for any one or more PDomains), go to
Step 5. Some PDomains are expandable. You must stop the PDomains that are expandable.
- For any PDomain that you identified as expandable in Step 3:
- Stop the expandable PDomain.
-> stop /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_x/HOST
Are you sure you want to stop
/Servers/PDomains/PDomain_x/HOST/ (y/n) ? y
- Repeat for any remaining expandable PDomains.
- Light the blue Ready to Remove LED on the SSB.
- Light the LED:
-> set /SYS/SSBx prepare_to_remove_action=true
- Verify that the LED is lit:
-> show /SYS/SSBx prepare_to_remove_status
prepare_to_remove_status = Ready
Note - If you change your mind and decide not to remove this component, execute
the return_to_service_action command from the above path.
- Use an antistatic wrist strap to protect the equipment from ESD damage.
- Locate the lit blue Ready to Remove LED.
The SSB is at the front of the server.
- Remove the SSB:
- Squeeze the locks on the extraction levers and open the extraction levers to
the horizontal position.
See detail 1 in the following illustration.
- Pull the SSB out of the slot.
Caution - The connectors on the rear of the SSB are easily damaged.
- Install the new SSB.
